Though it may seem excessive to write almost 4,000 words on how to write better papers, the reality is that writing papers in college (and the sort of writing you will do for the rest of your life) is not the same as you were asked to do in high school. My purpose in writing this guide is to help make you into better writers and to help you become better able to articulate your perspective....The point is not to give you pages of rules and regulations, but to give you the things you need to know to create and present your ideas in a legitimate and persuasive way.
Most non-fiction class papers fall into one of two categories: research papers or topic papers. For research papers, you are expected to pick a topic and engage in independent research (usually in the library or online) to find information and sources. For topic papers, you are usually given a topic, or several to choose from, based on the course readings and discussion and are expected to make use of those resources (rather than outside ones) to write your paper. Almost everything in this guide applies equally to both kinds of papers.
Note, however, that it is not possible to write a traditional APA Style reference if source information is truly missing. The purpose of an APA Style reference is to provide readers with information on how to locate the source that you used, and if you cannot tell them how to do so, you either have to find a substitute or cite the source as personal communication (see 6.20 in the Publication Manual).
The style guide outlines specific rules and usages followed by the writers and editors of the University Marketing and Communications team. UW Oshkosh defers to The Associated Press Stylebook when conflicting information exists.
Organizations & Extracurriculars: Student organizations can be a great way to build networks on campus and oftentimes build transferable skills employers are looking for like leadership, dedication, organization, and interpersonal skills. You can follow the same guidelines for writing the work and volunteer section to write about extracurriculars too. When choosing which organizations to include, think about which clubs have some component of volunteerism, skill building, professional development, academia, or personal growth. Though a purely social club may be fun, it does not tell employers anything about you as an applicant or professional. 041b061a72
